Review Text

For many, this is the highest point to which the novel could aspire. An epic novel about the Napoleonic invasion and the intertwining lives of three aristocratic families, it is certainly a high point in 'historical' fiction. It deals with a period outside of its author's experience. Here are Tolstoy's vaulting ambition and lunerring humanity in all their glory. (Kirkus UK)show more
